2022-23 Trócaire Annual ReportLearn More
The Trócaire team at the Bloom festival in Dublin.
As a potential Trócaire volunteer you are being asked to provide two references. These references will be contacted to check your suitability to carry out volunteering duties including handling collection money. The referees should not be relatives and should preferably be from two separate sources e.g. academic, employment, volunteering or from a person of standing within the community.
We will request your permission before checking references. Please ensure that they are aware of us contacting them beforehand to minimise waiting time.
Please note that, in keeping with good safeguarding practice, we will specifically ask referees about your suitability to work with people who may be vulnerable to abuse or exploitation.
As a Trócaire volunteer, your data will be kept securely and will not be shared with third parties without your consent. We will ask you for your consent to put you in contact with other stakeholders, including fellow volunteers, when necessary for projects and duties.
“Trócaire is committed to Safeguarding people within our programmes and activities from Exploitation and Abuse and has specific policies on this commitment (including a Global Code of Conduct). As representatives of Trócaire, volunteers are requested to sign Trócaire’s Safeguarding Policies and Global Code of Conduct and agree to conduct themselves in accordance with the provisions of these documents. Trócaire applies a broad definition of safeguarding which centres on a requirement that all Trócaire representatives do not engage in behaviours that abuses or exploits others in any setting.”
As a Trócaire volunteer, you will sign an agreement in which you allow Trócaire to use images taken of you while performing your volunteer duties for the purposes of social media and other communications material.
